'I first came across Louise Barnett - or Vint, as she was then - about ten years ago. She was putting her training as a BBC broadcast journalist to good use as a radio consultant and helped me get some pretty amazing results for quite a tough brief.
'I was immediately impressed, so when I needed to employ a decent account executive I had no hesitation in wooing her to the wicked world of PR.
'She took to it immediately and her combination of tenacity, attention to detail and natural warmth, together with a journalist's instincts, endeared her to clients and colleagues.
'Louise was unstoppable and completely fearless in any situation.'
Louise Barnett is joining PB Communications after a period of maternity leave.
